A Sports Vacation Made Easy

Published: December 23, 2013


Stephan poses with his new friend, The Oregon Duck

Planning a vacation around your favorite sporting pursuits can be a challenge. However, a little pre-planning can make deciding what all to do and see at your destination so much easier. Take Stephan Moreau from British Columbia. He had his sights set on a vacation that was in driving distance and would allow him to pursue his passions of running and mountain biking. The Eugene, Cascades & Coast area was a natural fit.

Stephan did his research before visiting, and it paid off! He found an affordable and comfortable hotel room, connected with a local mountain biking group to do some riding, visited historic Hayward Field, and attended a University of Oregon men’s basketball game where he even met The Oregon Duck!

Read all about Stephan’s adventures in his guest blog – we can only hope that he will return for another visit soon!
